Johnson on why he chose Utah:
"I chose Utah because of the great campus and college feeling. I was impressed with the coaching staff and I wanted to play in the Pac-12, one of the best conferences in the country."
Northgate High School Coach Tim Jochner on Johnson:
"The big difference with Spencer is you get a big, athletic player, not just your typical pitcher. He is a multi-sport athlete who has now focused just on pitching. That athleticism on the mound is a huge benefit and I expect Spencer to have a long, successful career."
